Take Time for Your Tires

Take Time for Your Tires

It is easy to forget about your vehicle's tires, but they play an essential role in your safety. Your tires are the only part of your vehicle that directly touches the road and can affect your vehicle's handling, braking, and overall ride and safety. The Auto Experts team is here to remind you to take time to take care of your tires.  Your tires need to have the proper tire pressure, tread depth, balance, and wheel alignment for optimal performance and safety. To preserve your tires' longevity and improve fuel economy, your tires need to be properly inflated. It is also important to rotate your tires. Front and back tires perform different steering and braking functions, which means they will wear out at varying paces and patterns. If you want to get the most out of your tires, tire rotation is critical. Typically, we will perform rotation every 5,000 and 7,000 miles.  Proper tire maintenance also involves tire balancing. Tire balancing ensures your tires wear o ... read more

Keep Your Vehicle Hydrated By Checking These Fluids

Keep Your Vehicle Hydrated By Checking These Fluids

Just like how we need fluids to stay hydrated, your vehicle does too. When your vehicle is low on fluids, your vehicle's overall performance and driveability will be negatively affected. Our team recommends sticking to a preventative maintenance schedule. This way, we can stay on top of your vehicle's fluid levels together.  The team at The Auto Experts is here to remind of which fluids are essential and why:  Oil: Your vehicle is made up of various moving parts, and to make sure all these components stay lubricated, your vehicle needs oil. Your vehicle's oil absorbs heat and prevents your engine from overheating. If your vehicle doesn't have enough oil, it might result in potentially expensive and dangerous repairs.  Transmission Fluid: Your transmission is one of your engine's most complex components, and transmission fluid is vital for your transmission's overall health. Just like how oil works, transmission fluid keeps your transmission lub ... read more

The Effects of Ash on Your Cabin Air Filter

The Effects of Ash on Your Cabin Air Filter

Wildfires have been ravaging California, and the effects of the fires are staggering. First, the Auto Experts team would like to thank all the firefighters working so hard to keep our state and communities safe and secure. We are fortunate to have you. Not only are these fires affecting California’s inhabitants, but they are also involving our vehicles, as the smoke and ash is beginning to seep into your cabin air filters.    Your cabin air filter is directly responsible for the air quality in your cabin, as it cleans the air that goes into your vehicle. This filter is placed in your vehicle’s ventilation system and will prevent dirt, dust, smoke, smog, pollen, and mold spores from entering your cabin. If your cabin air filter is dirty, your car’s ventilation, heating, and air-conditioning system will be compromised. When air passes through the filter, the filter traps these contaminants. Over time, debris will begin to accumulate in your air filter. To redu ... read more
